2016 Football Season Tickets

The West Georgia football team is preparing to reach higher in 2016, and season tickets are now open to the general public. Head coach Will Hall and his Wolves will open the 2016 season at home on September 3 in a battle of two teams that reached the NCAA Playoffs in the 2015 season. The Wolves were the top seed in Super Region 2 last year, and Catawba reached the playoffs as the third seed in the playoffs. West Georgia won Super Region 2 after a bye in the first round, a second round win over Valdosta State, and a championship victory over Tuskegee. Catawba hosted the first round of the playoffs, but fell to eventual region runner-up Tuskegee.
